NICK EICHER, HOST: Police in Tampa, Florida responded last week to what sounded like trouble.
It was about 8:30 on a Wednesday evening and somebody in a nearby apartment was sounding aggressive and impatient.
“Shoot! Shoot!” … “I dare you to shoot!”
Well, the neighbor’d heard enough of that and called 911 and police were on their way.
After a quick investigation, it turned out it was a hilarious false alarm.
Hockey fan Devon Garnett and some friends were yelling at the TV.
AUDIO: Here’s Hedman, then across now for Shattenkirk. And the shot … he scorrrrrrrrrrrrrres! Power-play goal!
Don’t you love sports fans? Just shooooooot. The game is so easy when you’re standing in your living room.
So you’ve figured it by now—the shooting wasn’t in Tampa. It was 2,800 miles away in a rink in Edmonton, Alberta.
All’s well that ends well … Garnett’s Tampa Bay Lightning skated away with the Stanley Cup last night … feels great, I can tell ya.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
